Texas Wars Map...

Postby Lexitonia5 on Wed May 28, 2008 8:22 pm

Has anyone had a problem in the new Texas Wars Map. Specifically, I cannot attack Pampa in the Panhandle section.

yea thats been a problem, and this should probably be merged with the original thread, which if it should, then one of the mods would probably do that soon

Yeah.. I was just playign this map and noticed the pampa and lubbock territories are crossed over with each other.

I would imagine it'd be a quick fix for mapmakers.

yes it usually is, but the coding for the map is really large and makes it hard to find just 1 error, when there were some other things that effected gameplay

actually there was that and a couple other things that i found which i changed. And no, changing the borders would not have fixed that.

Someone may need to take a good look at this situation: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=52439&p=1353624#p1353624

I noticed it and went to the game the guy was talking about and something weird did happen. He's right, DomQuebec somehow wound up with a territory he never conquered. XML problem perhaps? I doubt it's a "cheat code" like the accuser says though.

I said it before, I'll say it again. The coordinates of Pampa and Lubbock are switched. Switch the coordinates and everything is fixed.


bryguy says there are other problems. I have not heard of that at all.

Take the old XML switch the coordinates of those two I said above. Post the XML here and I'll do it f*ck. Actually fine.

If there were any other problems than the Lubbock/Pampa switch let me know and I'll fix that

Bryguy's fix is up...is there any difference between his and edbeard's? (This is why we like the cartographer/team of cartographers that worked on the map fixing the XMLs!)

well if it really is up then he didn't fix it because BOB still shows Lubbock as not connecting to Towakwa...


if there were no other problems than Pampa/Lubbock connections then mine is correct.

yea his shows these coordinates for Pampa

<smallx>203</smallx>
<smally>182</smally>
<largex>270</largex>
<largey>235</largey>

and these for Lubbock

<smallx>265</smallx>
<smally>94</smally>
<largex>354</largex>
<largey>119</largey>

Note that on the map, Lubbock is southwest of Pampa

Therefore it is not possible for his coordinates to be correct. I switched them on mine so that is correct.

Bryguy, what did you specifically fix? (Another thing that is helpful...always state what has been fixed or changed, like Edbeard previous did in his post).

I see a lot of people having this

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

at the top of their XML. This is not necessary to my knowledge and is added when you view the XML with an XML editor. When you write the XML, <map> should always be at the start

There is an exception to this though. If you're specifying that non-standard characters are going to be used in certain tags (eg: Iceland map). Though I'm not totally sure where that line of code is supposed to go or the syntax of that code.

Hey this is still a problem, if you can't fix it right away, can you atleast tell people that have games on this map that there's a bug?
